And you wonder why I call him King PlayStation?

"His Majesty King Abdullah on Saturday inaugurated the Jordan Interactive Gaming Laboratory, established under a Royal initiative, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.  The lab, which was opened yesterday on the sidelines of the first Jordan-US Business Forum, aims to provide technical training, resources and equipment for start-ups in the field of game development.  Established with support from the King Abdullah II Fund for Development (KAFD) and the Information and Communications Technology Association of Jordan (int@j), the lab aims at boosting the electronic games industry to turn Jordan into a regional hub for game developers."
